Pankow has said that the song is a nostalgic piece about his childhood:

"It touches on key phrases that, although they date me, are pretty right-on in terms of images of my childhood. 'The Howdy Doody Show' on television and collecting baseball cards and comic books." [1]

The song is still popular at Chicago concerts, with Jason Scheff or Keith Howland now singing the lead vocal.

The Good Old Days - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (194 words)
The Good Old Days was a popular BBC television light entertainment television programme which ran from 1953 to 1983.
It was recorded live at the Leeds Variety Theatre and recreated an authentic atmosphere of the Victorian–Edwardian music hall with songs and sketches of the era performed by present-day performers in the style of the original artistes.
The Good Old Days was inspired by the success of the "Ridgeway's Late Joys" at the Players' Theatre Club in London: a private members' club that ran fortnightly programmes of variety acts in London's West End.
Welcome to Good Old Days Online (516 words)
I was walking this morning from the kitchen to the pantry in the old frame house Janice and I have called our home for so many years.
After the children were satisfied with their ritual measuring, Janice and I went back to the old door frame, darkened and deepened the marks, dated each and wrote each child's name next to his or her measurement.
Years later, walking through the doorway, I see that the old pencil markings have all but faded, leaving only ruts in the wood to distinguish whose mark is whose, and what the date of each is. I sigh and wonder if I should just sand it down and refinish the frame.
